ArtTable is pleased to announce its second annual film series, Women, Art and Film, a selection of documentary films accompanied by panel discussions with film directors, collectors and art practitioners. The second installment of Women, Art and Film will include a screening of Peggy Guggenheim: Art Addict with special guests (to be announced) who will speak about the collecting impulse. This series, which is being presented in collaboration with FIFA and MUSE, will take place in the luxurious screening room of CORE:club, a private NYC club, and will include complimentary drinks. Tickets will sell fast so please reserve your seat ahead of time.
Peggy Guggenheim: Art Addict follows on director Lisa Immordino Vreeland’s acclaimed debut film, Diana Vreeland: The Eye has to Travel. An iconic personage who was not only ahead of her time but helped to define it, Peggy Guggenheim was an heiress to her family fortune who became a central figure in the modern art movement. As she moved through the cultural upheaval of the 20th century, she collected not only art, but artists. Her colorful personal history included such figures as Samuel Beckett, Max Ernst, Jackson Pollock, Alexander Calder, Marcel Duchamp as well as countless others. While fighting through personal tragedy, she maintained her vision to build one of the most important collections of modern art, now enshrined in her Venetian palazzo.
Daniel M. Gold of The New York Times called this film an  “entertaining portrait of the collector and gallerist who assembled one of the great troves of Modern art.

For more information on ArtTable’s Women, Art and Film series please check the ArtTable calendar. Future screenings include, Making Space: 5 Women Changing the Face of Architecture on March 10th and the New York preview of Eva Hesse on March 28th .

Many thanks to the ArtTable film committee for their help in organizing this series and to CORE:club for hosting us.
